a group of penguins in the water is called a raft- on land, they become a waddle.
“all penguins are the same below the surface,
which I think is as perfect an analogy as we’re likely to get for the futility of racism.”

powerful messages found everywhere
“in an open society, no idea can be above scrutiny, just as no people should be beneath dignity.”

“art is chaos and harmony infused together.
it is the expression of your emotions.
a form of both activism and rebellion.
it is, as they say, all around us.”
― hamma tahir
spent tonight at a rally
on the diag at the university of michigan
with mayor chris taylor addressing our city
as we stand in solidarity with charlottesville
and for all those who continue to stand against
racism, hate, violence, and inequality
organized in 10 hours
through grass roots movements
and a lot of heart and passion
a police officer, a mayor, a photographer, a bagpiper, a retiree
and hundreds of others
yet all here for the same reason
“it is the kindness …that finally decides our fate.”
— barack obama
